Defense Language Institute English Language Center
Since 1954, the Defense Language Institute English Language Center (DLIELC) has performed its mission to support the policies and objectives of the U.S. Government and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). DLIELC started as the U.S. Air Force Language School; our primary mission was to teach English to Allied pilot candidates. In 1966, our mission expanded to include other career fields, and our school moved under the DoD with the U.S. Army as the executive agent. Visit the DLIELC web site.
